Over the Christmas period the Let's Buy British team received lots of gifts but what better way to our hearts than to gift us something made in Britain! We we're all slightly surprised with some presents as we didn't expect them to be made in the UK. There are a multitude of companies that are solely British, it's just finding them and there are more than expected.
As the Christmas period is all about celebration, what better way is there to celebrate British made than to share with you some of the gifts we received and the companies they're from. We have chosen four products, one from a company within our collective and the others from equally respected British companies whom we would love to have join us.
Drum roll please for our collective member...
Dick Winters is the quintessentially British brand of fine luxury underwear for gentlemen. They make exclusively for the man that appreciates true quality, and British craftsmanship.
BLACK TIE COLLECTION
The Black Tie Collection offers discerning gentleman that something special. Designed for the ultimate comfort from day into evening and crafted from luxuriously soft British woven cotton plus stylish signature soft jacquard woven waistband.
The team member was shocked and purely delighted from receiving a pair of Dick Winters Black Tie collection underwear, not only as they are part of our collective but because they also came with a personalised message from the company - those small touches really do make it special.
Moving on to the companies we would love to have join us!
BOD - Body on Demand
Born from an aspiration to make every woman look and feel sexy in their skin, combined with proven science know- how, BOD brings effective body boosting solutions to bath time.
Transform your bath into an aquatic fantasy with the pink shimmer limited-edition salts! The same, body boosting formula, but with added mermaid-ness to turn your bath pink and shimmery.
I personally received this gift and as I am basically a magpie I was instantly in love with the packaging - holographic awesomeness that any girl can appreciate. After inspecting the packing I was amazed to see it is designed and made in the UK, making more even more excited about this product and using it.
First impressions: I chose not to use the whole pack in my bath as it seems so lovely I want to use it over various occasions, however only putting a handful of the salts in meant my bath water didn't turn pink BUT it was supper shimmery and I came out looking like a glittery mermaid. I am not too sure on losing excess water weight, you may have to follow the instructions and pile the lot in if your aiming for it to actually work but either way it was nice and relaxing.
Flaash Apparel was born from a love of tattoos, tattoo culture and the outdoors. This brand actively approaches established artists and designers to create something unique.
GYLLSTRÖM SLAYER TEE
Designed by the might Simon Gyllström.
Members in the Let's Buy British team have previously purchased from this brand and gradually have become fans so it was only right to be gifted one of their tees. Flaash Apparel offers something unique to the fashion world with it's high quality intricate designs. Although it isn't everyones style the brand produces some head turners and all we've had are compliments. They also wash up well and we haven't had any problems with colour fading so receiving this tee as a gift the team member was over the moon and obviously wore it Christmas Day! Plus another personalised message always goes down a treat!
Lyme Bay Winery
The Lyme Bay Winery is a small, dedicated West Country company passionate about producing delicious and award-winning English Wines, Fruit Wines, Ciders, Meads and Liqueurs from our home in Devon’s beautiful Axe Valley.
BRANDY BUTTERSCOTCH CREAM LIQUEUR
The yummy rich toffee flavour of butterscotch runs perfectly alongside the warmth of brandy and the smoothness of fresh cream. AWARD WINNER: Gold 2015/16 from The Food & Drink Devon Awards & Taste of the West Awards.
This was a gift for the whole team and replaced the Baileys Cream for Christmas! We completely understand why the Brandy Butterscotch Cream Liqueur is an award winner, it is honestly how they have described it and went down nicely after Christmas dinner and Boxing Day dinner and we're thinking of getting another bottle!
A delicious blend of award-winning Jack Ratt Scrumpy Cider with festive spices. Heat gently in a saucepan or microwave and serve warm for a stunning Christmas tipple.
This was also a gift for the whole team which we are saving for New Years (tomorrow). Although we are unable to give a review as of yet we cannot wait to try it especially as it is also an award winner! If it is anything like the Brandy Butterscotch Cream Liqueur we will be in love!
We hope you have found some British companies to add to your list to buy from and from all the team here at Let's Buy British we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
